GOP leaders: National security will end Carson and Trump campaigns

Donald Trump and Ben Carson have demonstrated more staying power than anyone predicted. But now, after the terrorist attacks on an American ally, Republican elders think their party’s flirtation with inexperience is nearing its end.

The reemergence of foreign policy atop the Republican agenda will force voters to reevaluate the outsider candidates, particularly as both Trump and Carson display a lack of knowledge about national security and the terrorist threat, party stalwarts said.

“The losers are going to be Donald Trump and Ben Carson on national security,” said Katon Dawson, the former chairman of the South Carolina GOP. “As the Republican base sobers up, they are the two, if this story lasts a long time, it's going to hurt."

Indeed, in interviews with current and former GOP chairs, veteran operatives, lobbyists and strategists, the long-held conviction that neither Trump nor Carson will win the Republican nomination has only strengthened since the attacks in Paris last week.

Fred Malek, who has advised multiple Republican presidents and is not affiliated with any contender this cycle, said the inexperience Trump and Carson reveal in their rhetoric will drive GOP primary voters toward another candidate.

Bah humbug, now that's a suspension of intellect...Semper Fi Nam 66-67

rinocrats! Savage is spot on right about them!

The GOP "establishment" must be running desperately scared to conjure up this BS! Obama had NO experience with any national security or foreign policy knowledge (still doesn't) and he got elected twice!! If the man/woman that is chosen as the candidate for president has the smarts to surround himself/herself with very smart people who are honest and loyal to them that is what really matters. K.T. McFarland, and John Bolton come immediately to mind as two very qualified persons on both subjects. The so-called "moderates" have gone down in flames the last three elections so what does that tell you?  The GOP establishment is nothing but progressives hiding behind a harmless sounding label, but in order to score runs you have to get to first base. Something "moderate" Republicans have failed miserably to do the last twelve years! Cruz or Trump YES! Moderates NO!

Moderates are fools masquerading as Republicans. Trojan Horse occupiers.

This is a very great point.  Obama is the most inexperienced elected official in the history of the US.  I can't believe people elected him twice, though there is substantial proof the both elections were rigged and highly influenced by muslim cash that was illegally used to put this traitor in our highest office and fill the White House with islamists like Val Jarrett and many many other traitors and foreign nationals trained by Muslim Terrorists.

Obama still has no good experience.  The only thing he can hang his hat on in this Presidency is that he took Jimmy Carter out of last place in U S Presidents.  Joe Biden was the only thing that kept him from being impeached and thrown in prison for treason.

Great response

Very well put Mr. Long.  What we as a Nation are doing is not working.  I agree with Dr. Ben, "it's time to get back to the basics of what made our Constitutional Republic Great.  I also agree with Mr. Trump, "Close the borders as our system of law dictates.  

And to that subject Trump has experience. He loves America.

If only Perot has stayed the course.

Deception has many clever forms and this has the Devil's fingerprints all over it.

I wouldn't put it past them. I won't vote then...and urge others to do the same.

Pelosi Disaster!  95% Of Americans Tuned Out Impeachment Show Trials On Friday — Only The Second Day Of Testimony

Despite the constant hype Americans are already tuning out the sham impeachment trials.

On the second day of the public show trials 95% of Americans turned off the nonsense.

Americans are worn out by all of the fake news and hysteria.

Devastating.

Yawn: 95% of U.S. Adults Skipped Day 2 of Democrats' Impeachment Hearings 

Yawn: 95% of U.S. Adults Skipped Friday’s Impeachment Hearings

Americans aren’t exactly obsessed with the Democrats’ impeachment hearings, it seems. Friday’s second day of live, wall-to-wall coverage drew an average of 12.7 million viewers on ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN,

Flashback: Horrible News For Shifty Schiff – Majority Of Americans Don’t Want Impeachment, 76% Don’t Trust Dems And Believe Media Is Pushing The Sham

No One in American Wants Impeachment except the Far-left Socialist Democrats and their Corrupt Media. They hate President Trump because he is a winner. He beat them and he’s making America great again as he said he would.

The Democrats and their corrupt media are totally blinded by their rage and they don’t realize that no one is in favor of impeachment.

We reported a week ago that FOX News released a poll where they stated that 49% of Americans were for Trump Impeachment. But their polling was flawed. The real extrapolated results of the poll using an accurate proportion of Republicans, Democrats and Independents showed that only 30% of Americans are in favor of Trump’s Impeachment and they’re all Democrats.

Next, a few days ago we reported on another poll that was consistent with the results of our extrapolated FOX News poll.

Nearly three quarters of all Americans have little or no trust in the way that Schifty Schiff is running the impeachment process –

You won’t hear this in the mainstream media: Nearly three fourths of Americans have little to no trust in the House Democrats’ handling of their impeachment process. 🤔

Today another poll was released with similar results.

Most Americans believe that the corrupt media is trying to help get President Trump impeached. Three-quarter of Republicans, half of independents and even a third of Democrats believe this to be the case. No one trusts Schifty Shiff or the corrupt media pushing his impeachment sham.

1- "Seventy-six percent (76%) of Republicans and a plurality (48%) of voters not affiliated with either major political party say most reporters are trying to help impeach Trump, a view shared by only 36% of Democrats."

Let's recast that last phrase 

Rasmussen Reports @Rasmussen_Poll
 

Most Say Media Working With Democrats to Impeach Trump... 

This is perhaps the worst gaffe in modern political history.

This Schiff Show does not have a happy ending for the Democrats. Even with the support of the entire corrupt fake news media, it’s a total sham and everyone knows it!
